TTB Tea #12:
I do believe this may be my 1st bagged white tea.
1 bag (1.91g)/6oz water. I really toned down the water temp for this. Boiling? I don’t think so.
The liquor is… well… apricot color. A muted, dull orange w/ tints of amber, brown, and tan. It’s very rare that a tea’s liquor so closely resembles the flavor.
The aroma is mainly apricot which makes it have jello-like qualities, but the white tea base comes thru to tone that down.
Interesting. It tastes virtually nothing like hot jello which is good. I’m quite picky about fruit flavored teas, especially those w/ a white base, for that very reason… but this is nice. The white tea base is light, but still solid enough that the apricot only sneaks thru instead of yelling “HI! I’M AN APRICOT TEA!” Exceeded my expectations of both a flavored white and a bagged tea of low weight- the weight concerned me since 2.25g of white tea can be over 1TB worth.
